Mikhail Prokhorov has said that he is interested in rapping and wants to rap with Jay-Z at the Barclays Center opening concert on September 28th. “Yes, I will rap at his concert. I am in rehearsals now 10 hours a day and plan to demand joint billing.” If Prokhorov is not kidding, he plans on being prepared for opening night which can make the opening concert very interesting and Nets-oriented. Prokhorov has not given away any of his raps, saying that they are “top secret”, but according to him, the concert will happen.
Prokhorov does have a little bit of experience with rapping as you can see here. I would love to see Mikhail open up the Nets’ new arena. Of course, not only Nets fans will want to go to this concert. New York rap fans will also want to see Jay-Z in Brooklyn. But if a Knicks fan goes to this concert, how would they not be converted to a Nets fan? Who wouldn’t want to have Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z as owners of your sports team? Prokhorov may be able to bring in more Nets fans by doing this concert.
